MSCI Webinar - Civilian Firearms: A Framework for Investor Action

Gun control has long been a contentious issue around the world and was recently brought back to the fore in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand. New Zealand’s gun industry is now facing increased pressure, with a new wave of activism targeting both the manufacturers and retailers of firearms as well as financial institutions that invest in or help to fund these companies’ operations. What are the options for institutional investors, including public funds, for taking action on this issue?

Join us for a webinar with MSCI experts to discuss how investors may choose to set an investment policy that calls for an engagement approach, a divestment approach, or a combination of the two. We will also review the easily customized screening options for understanding exposure to the firearms industry, as well as the potential performance implications of divestment.
